"The search is over, I found him!"

Oz Reunion creator finds the family of his long lost brother

After administrating this website for over 6 years, and after countless reunions that Oz Reunion has been responsible for, finally the search is over for me. This website does work, and I can now say I am proof of that!

It is a wonderful story of hope and happiness, especially for those still searching, but it also is a story with a touch of sadness. I had nearly lost all hope, until one day.... Please read my amazing story below and everyone should know not to give up hope in finding answers. There is always hope, and good luck with your search.

Mike - Publisher Oz Reunion

God bless you for this

There is no way I could ever thank you enough!! Had it not been for Oz Reunion, chances are that my 'brother' would have remained dead, as I thought he was. Instead, because of Oz Reunion, I have been able to embrace my brother, to look him in the eye, and to know after 34 years that he's alive, and we can be together again, forever!! There may be miles, but there will never again be distance! God bless you for this. It would have never happened without your website. Watch the video: Click here

Reunited with my birth mother after 54 years

Thank you Mike. Through registering on your site I was approached by the team from Find My Family which led to me being reunited with my birth mother after 54 years. We were reunited on April 4/5 2009 (April 5 being my birthday) I also now have a sister and brother and 7 new nephews. To those of you who are still searching please don't give up it is worth it in the end.

Tracy Stephens

Thank you for this great website

When I was little my birth mother disappeared from my sisters and my life this was 1963 .. my dad had remarried and we all moved on. We have both been on a long and exhaustive search trying to piece together the puzzle Kept coming up empty, until Kim stumbled across an entry on Oz Reunion in the Adoption Register. She found a name & looked it up, and low and behold all the information that we have SO DOES POSSIBLY ONE OF OUR LONG LOST SIBLINGS who we know nothing about. This is the first real breakthrough in nearly 40 years and the first small piece of info that has come across our paths. Thank you to the website hopefully we can get the rest of the puzzle solved and move on. This has given us plenty of hope and has made us all a family again ..it has changed all of our lives.

This is better than winning lotto!

Thank you so much , today I spoke to my son for the very first time, oh joy to finally get my one wish i.e. to learn that he was and is and always will be part of a beautiful and very loving family , into which he was welcomed with so much love and joy ,since I had to let him go in February 1969. This is better than winning the lotto!!. Thank you so, so much for your marvellous site, my son Jamie and I met for the first time in thirty eight and half years, on 17th August at Adelaide airport, oh what a wonderful moment, we hugged immediately and I truly thought my heart would burst with love and pride, that this fine young man was actually my son. The pure joy of that meeting will remain with me always. Watch the video: click here

How can I ever thank you enough

It was a simple post on your website which led to my adoption reunion through a programme on TV .... like many others here I had nearly given up hope of ever "knowing". I now have my birth mother & 4 siblings in my life and there is plenty of love for all! Finding out about my mother, wonderful brothers & sisters, nieces & nephews & close indigenous family ties are just the beginning. How can I ever thank you enough Mike, for making the phone call that gave me a fairy tale ending.

Jeny OHara

Thanks again for making my dream come true

Thankyou for your website. it is the best thing ever. Well i have found my dad. He is alive and very healthy. thanks to all those people that emailed me and rang me with information. I now have a very large family. My dad has five other children and my mum has two and I'm the oldest of 3 sisters and four brothers. My dad is Douglas John Uerbergang. I'm very happy and my life is complete. I met my dad in July 2007 and the best thing was my mum {Mary} came with me. They hadn't seen each other since i was born. That was 47 yrs ago. It was the proudest day of my life. Not many other people would have the luck as i did to have both birth parents at the meeting.

Vikki Godden

Amazing! Thank you once again

I just wanted you to know that we have been successful in finding Ellen (birth mother) & other family members thanks to your site. As a result of your site, a half-brother that we didn't know even existed. So thank you VERY VERY much!! We felt like we had hit the final brick wall in ever finding anyone else, & then everything just snowballed over a period of 2 weeks. Amazing! Thank you once again for all that you've been instrumental in achieving for us.

No words can express my gratitude

It was my add on your site that brought not only my biological Mother and I together but also my biological Father. I am now surrounded by all these wonderful people, who have so much love and joy at finding me after 41 years of wondering if I was safe and happy. It is an amazing experience and they are beautiful people. I'm still in the process of meeting their families and have 7 half brothers and sisters to meet as well. Not a day goes by that I don't smile at all that has happened in such a short time. Thank you again for providing Australia with such an easy way to reunite people.

You have changed my life

I would like to thank Mike and the team at Oz Reunion for helping me find my family after 27 years, I was reunited with my birth mum and siblings. On the 4th of May 2014 we were all together reunited as was. Thank you Mike for all your help. You have changed my life, and from overnight being an only child I have gained so much.

Oz Reunion changed our lives

After twelve and a half years of searching for our older sister, I found her two years ago thanks to my very small post that had been sitting on Mike's website for a few years. I had found my birth family in the mid 80s, and a chance comment in 2000 started this search. Even though we'd all met up two years ago, it was only three weeks ago at our youngest sister's surprise 60th birthday lunch that we were all together for the very first time in our lives. Words cannot express our thanks enough - Mike, without you and your website, our lives would not be filled with the happiness we now have.

Fiona

A million thanks for the incredible service

Very pleased to say that my brother saw the entry I posted in Oz Reunion on March 7 and emailed me last week. All we knew was his birth name and that he was born a few years after me. We are now in contact - after 49.5 years. A million thanks for the incredible service you offer!

We've met and they have accepted me and my husband totally & without reservation and I feel now that I am, at last, a whole person once again. Thank you again, I know many people do & that is wonderful. Brina Anderson
  17. Yes, I found my children after 41 years of searching!! Originally there was no internet, so I had to try the Salvation Army etc. But because my ex Wife's Parents blocked any contact, and wouldn't even disclose an address in Melbourne, all was lost! Solicitors, Salvation Army, Charity foundations, whatever, had the same problem, no starting address. With the advent of internet, I started putting messages on "Message Boards" far and wide, and of course "Oz Reunion", and every outlet I could find. People were very kind, and when I travelled to Australia three times over the years, I found information in Melbourne Library, that put me in the right frame of mind to "never give up". I succeeded through the message board. My Grandson! (unknown) was doing a search of his family tree, and spotted my advert, The rest is history as they say. One of my now, 4 Sons paid for me and my now Wife to go to Adelaide, to meet my Son, and hence my Daughter then in Sydney. Words cannot even describe the feelings!! Wonderful, but sadness too, that my two lovely kids, had been separated by their grandparents, and at various times put in orphanages etc!! But Hey, enough sadness. We are in constant touch on line, and because of my ill health, I'm waiting for a lottery win, to enable me to once more return to Oz. I remain, yours faithfully Terry Evans. Bristol, England.
  18. Thank you Mike. Through registering on your site I was approached by the team from Find My Family which led to me being reunited with my birth mother after 54 years. We were reunited on April 4/5 2009 (April 5 being my birthday) I also now have a sister and brother and 7 new nephews. To those of you who are still searching please don't give up it is worth it in the end. Neil
  19. I just though I would send you a quick message regarding my reunion with my birth mother. It was because of an ad I saw on your website, that I looked into my adoption further, and have now made contact with my birth mother. It all started when I "Googled" my birth name in 2008. Your website was the first listing!!! I clicked on it and the ad for "me" came up. I was gob-smacked!! All the information matched. We made contact by email for a few months. She flew to Perth from the UK in April 2009 and spent two weeks with me. The reunion was a great success and we are planning further visits etc. I am a great believer in "Fate". Me Googling my name was the first attempt I had ever made to find my family. It all fell into place so quickly and easily! It was just meant to be. Thank you so much for having such a resource available. Val.
  20. Dear Oz Reunion, I FOUND MY DAD! I would just like to say a big thank you. I found my natural father after 14 years of searching. Because of this web site I now have family back. I even discovered a brother i never knew I had. Its the most special thing in the world. Mandy.
  21. Many moons ago, I placed an add searching for Helen IVERS. Just advising you that thanks to this add placement, I was contacted by a show on TV and subsequently met my birth mother Helen. Can you update the listing please to show we have reunited, this may give hope to others that your site does work. Thanks again, Brad.
  22. Many thanks for all your help. I have found my sister Helen Frances Roberts and I’m now organizing to meet her. Many Thanks Robyn.
  23. I get an email from the pal I was looking for 3 years ago! So yes, a success, patience is virtue! Cheers, Bob
  24. Thankyou for your amazing website – I have finally found my big sister after 37 years – we have reunited with a wonderful relationship and are now in the process of reuniting a whole new beginning of quality family times. Cheryl Edmond
  25. Thanks to you I am now in contact with my long lost friend Michael (Jack) Mc Gee after 38 years. I never thought I would hear from him again. I had tried so many ways, I am so grateful to Oz Reunion to have my best pal back. My best regards from Dublin Ireland, Paddy Keogh.
  26. I just wanted to contact you to let you know how much I have appreciated this website. Thanks to your website, I have found my natural daughter that I gave up for adoption over 34 years ago. We have just made contact with each other last night via email. My add is in the adoption section. Thank you again, this has been the best $20.00 I have ever spent in my life, Suzanne Brown
  27. I can confirm that I have found my birth mother over the last week or two & as a result I have also found my birth father. I have had great success as a result of this website. In speaking with my birth mother, she had never heard of the website before & I hadn’t either until I saw a reunion on TV about 3 months ago. So, promote your product as much as you can to make it worthwhile for as many people as possible. I know I would tell as many people as I can just in the hope they too can have success, but I believe that you will have greater success with greater exposure. I definitely appreciate the works of the website, so thank you for your assistance. Edward Thornewell
  28. Hi, I placed an ad on your website about 4 weeks ago, as a last ditch attempt to find my birth parents after almost 30 years of fruitless searching. About a week ago, I was contacted by a lady named Glenys, who had seen my ad on your site. She thought she may have found my birth father. Yesterday, I spoke to my birth father for the first time. Glenys had contacted him for me at my request, and although he did not know about me, he was open to contact, and said I could phone him. I am so very grateful to your site, and especially to Glenys, as I was worried that much longer and it would have been too late. My birth father and I spent an hour on the phone, and have arranged to send photo's, and to keep in touch, taking it one day at a time. So, thank you very much for the wonderful site, thanks to Glenys for all her help, and thanks for helping me discover who I am. Still looking for my birth mum, but it's a hell of a start. Kind regards, Lisa Ryan
  29. I had an advert on your adoption website, looking for my adopted brother - sadly I found out just recently that my brother died in 2002 at the age of 37. On a positive note, although heartbreaking to find my brother had died, it was through a contact to your site that we discovered the truth, and although sad, at least we do know where and when he died, and quite a lot about his life. So we take comfort in knowing who he was, that he was happy and well loved. I now have contact with his adoptive mother and sister, and I feel that although I have lost a brother, I have gained a sister..so Thank you. Terri Shanks
  30. Thankyou so much, my sister just called me, I have one sister and a half brother, and my parents are well. I am so pleased with your web site, I had been looking for many years. I am now 39yrs old and have finally found my family. Katisha Forrest
  31. My mother (Valerie Isla Mirams) abandoned me, in a box, all those years ago. It is truly amazing and to have the opportunity to put the story out there and to be reunited with my family is ALL as a result of your fabulous website and the work that you and your employees do. Thank you so much and I know that God has a special place for you all in heaven. Keep up the great work. Julie Seinor.
  32. After only 2 weeks on OZ Reunion, I found my mother, 2 sisters, a brother, 2 nephews & 3 nieces and an aunt & so far, things are going really well. To the angel who helped me find my family, I would like to say thank you so much for all your help. To others who are still searching for their families, please don't give up hope, have faith that you will find your loved ones, they could be looking for you too. Mike keep up the good work, your site is invaluable and you have helped so many people find their families, it's great to know that you care for so many people. Kathy

  60. Thank you so much for helping me find my sister. We spoke for the first time last night and I'm still trying to come to terms with actually finding her after so long. Keep up the great service and thanks again. Trish Forbes.
  61. Dear Mike, There is no way I could ever thank you enough!! Had it not been for Oz Reunion, chances are that my 'brother' would have remained dead, as I thought he was. Instead, because of Oz Reunion, I have been able to embrace my brother, to look him in the eye, and to know after 34 years that he's alive, and we can be together again, forever!! There may be miles, but there will never again be distance!! David Dermody
  62. God bless you for this. It would have never happened without your website. Not only did I find the only man who mattered that I served with in Vietnam, but also my cousin in Queensland, who's more a sister than a cousin. So thanks OZ REUNION, thank you from the bottom of this old soldier's heart... But meanwhile, I cannot thank you enough. I have thought of my brother so very often over the years, and it was your site, that brought us together again. I don't know where the bloody hell Coolum Beach is, but it has to be somewhere near Paradise. Thank you seems insufficient, but thank you nevertheless. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Good on ya!! Aloha nui loa, Tom Fairfull, Honolulu, brother of David Dermody, twin sons of different mothers!"
  63. Thank you for this great website. My name is Gary Sturdy. When I was little my birth mother disappeared from my sisters and my life this was 1963 .. my dad had remarried and we all moved on. We have both been on a long and exhaustive search trying to piece together the puzzle Kept coming up empty, until Kim stumbled across an entry on Oz Reunion in the Adoption Register. She found a name & looked it up, and low and behold all the information that we have SO DOES POSSIBLY ONE OF OUR LONG LOST SIBLINGS who we know nothing about. This is the first real breakthrough in nearly 40 years and the first small piece of info that has come across our paths. Thank you to the website hopefully we can get the rest of the puzzle solved and move on. This has given us plenty of hope and has made us all a family again ..it has changed all of our lives Regards Gary and Kim. Can We Help programme 21st Sept. 2007.
  64. Thank you so much , today I spoke to my son for the very first time, oh joy to finally get my one wish i.e. to learn that he was and is and always will be part of a beautiful and very loving family , into which he was welcomed with so much love and joy ,since I had to let him go in February 1969. I now live on the other side of the world, but as soon as I was informed that he was willing to speak to me, I phoned and we talked for nearly 2hours.What a wonderful young man he sounds, we will be in contact with each other again soon as he is going to write and send some photo's of himself and his two fantastic son's. I have been trying to trace him for years, and have had my listing on your site a very long time and just by sheer chance my listing was spotted and I was then sent his details. Again thanks a million, and to all your listers don't ever give up hope, and good luck to you all. Thanks for your wonderful site as without you I would not have traced my wonderful son and grandsons. We have not met up yet and it will be at least a couple of years before I could make trip to Australia and my son is not in financial position to come here for a few years yet.We are in regular contact via phone and now that he has email again we send messages. My two lovely grandsons are in regular contact with me via email and I am so happy. My daughter has also been in touch with her big brother and two nephews ,as she sends family newsletter couple of times a year to family and friends and included them this time. All my dreams would come true to finally meet them. Oh my God, I had a phone call from (ABC TV) and they want to fly me out to Australia to meet my son Jamie in person on their show. How can I ever thank you enough for your wonderful site and your help in setting this up for me. Sorry, I know I am rambling on here, but it is just so unbelievable that something so fantastic could be happening to someone as ordinary as me. Here I am an overweight 61 year old Grandmother, just about surviving on a pension and completely out of the blue I need to start preparing for a trip to Australia, without having to sweet talk my bank manager for a top up loan. Is this for real, wow*** I am so excited and so looking forward to meeting Jamie after 38yrs.of longing. This is better than winning the lotto!!. Thank you so, so much for your marvellous site, my son Jamie and I met for the first time in thirty eight and half years, on 17th August at Adelaide airport, oh what a wonderful moment, we hugged immediately and I truly thought my heart would burst with love and pride, that this fine young man was actually my son. The pure joy of that meeting will remain with me always. I spent two weeks in Adelaide, the first night at a hotel and then my boy wanted me to stay at his house for the rest of my trip. I must be the luckiest woman, we had such a lovely holiday together and I am already planning on another trip in 2009 all being well. Cheers and many, many thanks from Ireland. Phyllis

Reunited with my birth mother after 54 years

Thank you Mike. Through registering on your site I was approached by the team from Find My Family which led to me being reunited with my birth mother after 54 years. We were reunited on April 4/5 2009 (April 5 being my birthday) I also now have a sister and brother and 7 new nephews. To those of you who are still searching please don't give up it is worth it in the end.

How can I ever thank you enough

It was a simple post on your website which led to my adoption reunion through a programme on TV .... like many others here I had nearly given up hope of ever "knowing". I now have my birth mother & 4 siblings in my life and there is plenty of love for all! Finding out about my mother, wonderful brothers & sisters, nieces & nephews & close indigenous family ties are just the beginning. How can I ever thank you enough Mike, for making the phone call that gave me a fairy tale ending.

Thanks again for making my dream come true

Thankyou for your website. it is the best thing ever. Well i have found my dad. He is alive and very healthy. thanks to all those people that emailed me and rang me with information. I now have a very large family. My dad has five other children and my mum has two and I'm the oldest of 3 sisters and four brothers. My dad is Douglas John Uerbergang. I'm very happy and my life is complete. I met my dad in July 2007 and the best thing was my mum {Mary} came with me. They hadn't seen each other since i was born. That was 47 yrs ago. It was the proudest day of my life. Not many other people would have the luck as i did to have both birth parents at the meeting.

Vikki Godden

Amazing! Thank you once again

I just wanted you to know that we have been successful in finding Ellen (birth mother) & other family members thanks to your site. As a result of your site, a half-brother that we didn't know even existed. So thank you VERY VERY much!! We felt like we had hit the final brick wall in ever finding anyone else, & then everything just snowballed over a period of 2 weeks. Amazing! Thank you once again for all that you've been instrumental in achieving for us.

Robyn & John Holloway

No words can express my gratitude

It was my add on your site that brought not only my biological Mother and I together but also my biological Father. I am now surrounded by all these wonderful people, who have so much love and joy at finding me after 41 years of wondering if I was safe and happy. It is an amazing experience and they are beautiful people. I'm still in the process of meeting their families and have 7 half brothers and sisters to meet as well. Not a day goes by that I don't smile at all that has happened in such a short time. Thank you again for providing Australia with such an easy way to reunite people.

You have changed my life

I would like to thank Mike and the team at Oz Reunion for helping me find my family after 27 years, I was reunited with my birth mum and siblings. On the 4th of May 2014 we were all together reunited as was. Thank you Mike for all your help. You have changed my life, and from overnight being an only child I have gained so much.

Oz Reunion changed our lives

After twelve and a half years of searching for our older sister, I found her two years ago thanks to my very small post that had been sitting on Mike's website for a few years. I had found my birth family in the mid 80s, and a chance comment in 2000 started this search. Even though we'd all met up two years ago, it was only three weeks ago at our youngest sister's surprise 60th birthday lunch that we were all together for the very first time in our lives. Words cannot express our thanks enough - Mike, without you and your website, our lives would not be filled with the happiness we now have.

Fiona

A million thanks for the incredible service

Very pleased to say that my brother saw the entry I posted in Oz Reunion on March 7 and emailed me last week. All we knew was his birth name and that he was born a few years after me. We are now in contact - after 49.5 years. A million thanks for the incredible service you offer!
